While on a 10-month deployment, the Yankton-based Battery B and Watertown-based FSC provided rocket artillery and logistics support to Operation Atlantic Resolve, which builds readiness, increases interoperability and enhances allied nation partnerships between militaries using multinational training events. Many state government leaders were on hand to welcome the Soldiers home. Gov. Kristi Noem, U.S. Senators John Thune and Mike Rounds, Congressman Dusty Johnson and Maj. Gen. Jeff Marlette, SDNG adjutant general, spoke at the event and praised the Soldiers for their service. "As a mother of three, I am especially thankful for your service and the ways you've given of yourselves to continue making our world a safer place for my kids and your kids," said Noem. "I can't express how thankful I am for the sacrifices you've made to be away from your families in service to our American family." "To our Soldiers, welcome home, thank you for your service and thank you for the excellent job you did," said Marlette. "You are part of an elite group of less than one percent of Americans who are willing to put on this uniform and serve. Thank you for that service." During their deployment, Bravo Battery and the FSC had many accomplishments. They fired 132 rockets, and participated in two multinational exercises: Dynamic Front and Breakthrough, which included a total of 27 partner nations. They were the first American unit to fire the Multiple Launch Rocket System in Hungary and the first to fire the MLRS in Germany since 2006. Bravo Battery and the FSC also re-established the supply and part ordering system for MLRS specific parts in the United States European Command, as well as attaining a near perfect overall equipment readiness rate. They also assisted active duty counterparts to complete munitions and fuel transport missions, when assistance was needed. "Over the last ten and a half months we have traveled far from home. Even though we were far from home, it was never far from our hearts and minds," said Capt. Daniel LaMaack. commander of Bravo Battery. "This mission from a strategic level has importance. For the future success of our nation and our European allies, it was deemed necessary to bring this very special unit to Europe. "We can never repay you for the sacrifices you've made, but I will support you and your families," said Noem. "I will pray for you as you transition back into civilian life. And I will say thank you. Over and over again. You can count on that."
